Smoking Apparatus: Bongs vs. Pipes


It has long since being debated amongst smokers as to which smoking paraphernalia is superior to use for smoking tobacco or medical cannabis, the bongs (glass water bongs) or dry pipes. A lot of people will always prefer smoking through a smoking pipe and many people are saying they prefer using water bongs. We are going to look at the pros and cons of these smoking devices to attempt to write a comparison between the two.

First, we will look at some techie description of the two smoking devices. A smoking pipe is generally created from wood, clay, ceramic, or glass that has an opening at one end to light the tobacco and a hole on the other end to where you inhale the smoke. While the bong is a paraphernalia that is generally used for smoking cannabis, tobacco, hashish and other herbal substances that has a water filtration system. You’ve got it right! The most obvious difference between the two is that the bong has water in it to filter the smoke.

Smoking through a dry pipe is pretty much straight-forward. Attempting to breathe in a huge hit from a dry pipe is quite difficult due to the fact the smoke you get is typically hot and very unpleasant to the throat and lungs. Sometimes you even get to inhale chunks of tobacco in to your mouth due to the fact that dry pipes literally have no filters in them. So you are just basically smoking tobacco directly into your lungs. Using the bong with your tobacco enables you to take in a much smoother smoke. Due to the fact that the smoke gets cleaned initially via the water prior to getting to your mouth. Smoking through water bongs is much gentler for your lungs is what most people claim. Not forgetting that you get to breathe in a much larger amount of smoke that consequently allows you to have a quicker effect of smoking. Read more about dab rigs at our website.

Despite the fact that some smokers would claim that the water in the bong might also remove some of the THC elements of the hashish and medical cannabis, however, this is incorrect. The biggest advantage of dry pipes is that they are very easy to carry around unlike water bongs which are usually so much bigger and stouter and legally harder to travel with. In addition, compared to bongs, pipes are easier to clean as they are much smaller. Read more about bongs at
